The Arms Lounger was inspired by watching people relaxing on the beach. The angled back legs relate to a human form reminiscent of a person sitting on the ground leaning back with their weight on their arms. The mood at the beach is energetic yet relaxed and social and the form of the Arms Lounger reflects those characteristics.

The bent legs create a shorter lounge chair that fits in smaller spaces while the upright position promotes interaction with others. The use of powder coated aluminum sheet metal and teak provide ample protection to the elements in an outdoor environment.

The frame is fabricated in sheet aluminum and powder coated with various color options. The teak slats fit interior to the frame and can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. With teak finishes in natural or weathered and multiple color options for the frame, the Arms lounge chair provides flexibility to fit any outdoor environment. An optional fabric cushion provides added comfort and flexibility to create looks to match any environment.
